Today the Sun Sentinel and Business Events, LLC announced the launch of the first Sun Sentinel Living Green Fair which will take place the weekend before Earth Day on April 18-19, 2009, at Dolphin Stadium. The Living Green Fair aims to be the premier community event designed to show families how to lead “greener” lifestyles, as well as be the most important meeting place for consumers and suppliers of “green” products and services.
“This event will provide a unique forum for the South Florida community to find solutions and ways to live a more environmentally sustainable lifestyle. In today’s economic climate the added benefit is that these solutions will also help consumers reduce their overall cost of living,” says David Etzler CEO of Business Events LLC, and Fair co-producer. “South Florida, with its amazing weather and active outdoor lifestyle, has a unique opportunity to take a national leadership role in green living,” added Etzler.
Geared towards the South Florida community including parents, children, educators and government leaders; the Living Green Fair will focus on how we can create a healthier environment, reduce energy costs, and learn how to live a more environmentally-friendly lifestyle.
The Sun Sentinel Living Green Fair will be an interactive event designed to give consumers an experiential understanding of the green marketplace. Attendees will be encouraged to participate in demonstrations, sample organic products, and help find solutions to environmental issues. The event will have numerous activities and entertainment for children of all ages, as local school districts will be invited to participate in green-themed contests, live concerts and other activities.
With a strong focus on community, the goal of the Living Green Fair is to help bridge the gap between local families, governments, and the green products and services industry. “We’re very excited to be part of the ‘green’ movement sweeping South Florida with the inaugural Sun Sentinel Living Green Fair. We look forward to this event becoming home base for the ‘green’ community,” explained Sun Sentinel President and Publisher Howard Greenberg.
Aside from having the largest gathering of environmentally-friendly products and services in the area, the event will also focus on local transportation options, green education, government programs and incentives, and green lifestyle issues. So, in addition to the numerous displays and exhibits, the Fair on April 18-19, 2009 will also host seminars and live demonstrations.
Dolphin Stadium was selected as the site for the Living Green Fair because of its central location, and its commitment to eco-friendly practices. The stadium uses biodegradable corn starch cups, earth-friendly cleaning products, and recycles bottles, cans and corrugated cardboard. It is also exploring the potential use of thermal energy storage as a way to conserve energy.
